Let’s time travel, learn some amazing facts about ancient civilizations, and make some new friends!

During this 13 week class, we will be visiting Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome and we will be doing this using 2 different book series. The first, the “Who Was” series. This series of books brings a lot of powerful information on people, places, and events to children in a straightforward way. The second, the “Magic Tree House” series. This series brings in a bit of fiction with Jack and Annie, but we will also be reading the accompanying Fact Finder, for more fact finding fun! Both of these series appeal to both boys and girls and are designed for seasoned readers and reluctant readers alike!

Before our adventure starts, I will give each learner a discovery journal to make so they will have a place to keep a log of our adventure.  Each week I will also send a packet of educational and fun printables that can include a lesson plan, a vocabulary list, a crossword puzzle, a word search, a maze, a sheet of flash cards, among other things.

Each week our book club will meet to discuss the book we read during the previous week (we will not read books in class). Beyond conversation, videos and slides will often be shared and we will do an in-class activity (crafts and games). Learners will also be asked to make a project each week outside of class, many of the projects will be “loosely” assigned, allowing room for creativity. This project is meant to add some fun and help with those that really benefit from hands on learning. There will be 2 weeks where projects will be completely learner led, though a topic will be given. Projects will require supplies that most of us have on hand (glue, paper, a box, and so on). Projects will be shared during the class meeting time, which will encourage public speaking, allowing learners to talk to each other and make friends!

Our first class will be an introductory class, where we will set the structure of future meetings and learn more about the 3 civilizations through discussion and slides, we will also do an in-class activity. Future classes will be structured with a short introductory period, discussion time, sharing of projects, and if time allows, in class visual aids and activities. Each week I will also send a printable to the classroom to help learners remember the key points of each book.
